Caddy Conversion To Flower Car

Recommended Posts

Anyone on here have any tips or printed matter to convert a '59 Cad to an "El Camino-type" pickup?

There was a Coach works that did real-size ones for Cadillac for large funeral parlors, as "flower cars".

I've seen this done on a Jo-Han model, but no particulars; I'm thinking of doing it to a Ghostbusters "Superior" body, but still need a rear window from a "pancake"-type roof.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Here's something along the lines you're talking about...

...Modelhaus sells the "Turret Top" hardtop roof section to do the roof like this.
